Check the Weekly Schedule menu item on the left for weekly games and practice times.  During the season, teams typically practice twice a week on weeknights for 90 minutes.  Games are usually on weekends.

Teams do not typically practice on the same nights every week. 


All of the leagues that we play in require that all players be residents of the town they play for - all STBC players must be Simsbury residents.

The cost to participate on a team for the upcoming season has not been determined yet. Last year it was $325 per player, we expect the cost will be similar this season. Costs include gym rental & custodial fees, game officials, league fees, website fees and team equipment.  The fee does not include the cost of a uniform - approximately $75. Individual teams may choose to participate in activities that could require additional costs.
